Hobbies are relaxing and help us cope with the everyday stresses of life. Celebrities lead busier lives than most of us so it should come as no surprise that many of them have hobbies too. That said, you might be surprised at what some of their interests include, although really they are no stranger than yours or mine.

George Clooney Makes Shoes

According to Listverse, George Clooney makes shoes in his spare time. He revealed that this is his favourite pastime on Reddit in 2014, stating that he is a better cobbler than Daniel Day-Lewis who also has the same passion.

Kate Moss Plays Bingo

Kate Moss developed her love of bingo as a young girl and according to articles in the Telegraph and the Mirror, she still loves to play although these days she tends to play online.  She joins the many thousands of others who play on sites such as Buzz Bingo largely because of the variety of games.

 According to Cultbox, she is not the only one with this pastime. Mick Jagger even holds bingo parties at his luxury home, and there is no shortage of celebrity pals ready to attend.

 Bill Murray Loves Gatecrashing

 Bill Murray just loves to turn up where he is least expected. As well as making us all laugh on TV and the big screen, he loves to put joy into people’s day-to-day lives. There are many stories of him serving in bars, giving out drinks for free and even making surprise appearances at events. He has joined bachelor parties, engagement parties and even once crashed a private house party where he washed the dishes for the host. In fact, there are so many of these antics that a website, Bill Murray Stories, has been started to make them more public.

 Nicolas Cage And Comic Books

 Nicolas Cage has an obsession with comic books and has an extremely large collection. Even his surname “Cage” comes from the Marvel character, Luke Cage, as he did not want to be accused of using his true family name to further his career. He is actually the nephew of director Francis Ford Coppola, Coppola being his real surname. According to GEMR, his collection was built up, sold and then rebuilt. Although he has sold some of them again, he decided to retain most this time around.

 It seems he collects many other things too; he has shrunken pygmy heads, a pet octopus and a dinosaur skull. He also has several exotic pets.  On top of that, among his collection of motor vehicles, there are nine Rolls Royce cars and 30 motorbikes. Property wise, he owns an island, a castle and a mansion that is said to be haunted.

 Some of these pastimes might seem a bit strange, but really they are not so out of the ordinary when you consider the range of hobbies now on offer.

TV stars including Mreenal Deshraj, Ankit Bathla and Jasmin Bhasin don’t ditch their fitness regime no matter where they are — including vacations and outdoor schedules.

Some alter their diet while others try to indulge in physical exercise. Some resort to yoga while others prefer to go on a run. Here’s what all the actors do to stay fit.

* Mreenal Deshraj
“When I am working and don’t have time to go to the gym, I usually workout at home. I try to do at least 30-45 minute of an intense workout. Whereas when we are shooting outdoor or on a holiday, I take care of my diet and try to do some kind of physical exercise.”

* Arif Zakaria
“Fitness doesn’t need a gym or an expansive space. The world is tailored to walk, run or sit on a mat and pontificate. I try and do all of this when I travel. Of course, I also try to find a tennis court to play.”

“As an actor, I always try to manage my day and schedule it accordingly. I swim and go to the gym daily at least six days a week. Fitness is the one thing which gives me a high in life. If I’m on outdoor shoots and not able to workout, I try to run and do parkour workouts outdoor.”

* Amal Sehrawat
“Personally, I don’t like gymming, though I have to hit the gym for the sake of my packs. I love running on the beach or gardens. I prefer the stairs over the lift. During my outdoor shoots, I stay outdoors.”

* Ira Sone
“I have a love-hate relationship with fitness and diet. I love to eat as I am a foodie but I also love to hit the gym, to get results you need to balance both. On days, when I can’t hit the gym, I make sure to control what I eat and try to walk after all meals. But as an actor, I need to be fit so that I can work for 12 hours.”

* Jasmin Bhasin
“I do yoga and a little bit of cardio to keep myself fit because it’s very important for me to feel healthy from the inside.”

* Ankit Bathla
“It’s a very interesting story, when I can’t go to the gym, my trainer comes on the set and we work out with the weights of the crane. I also believe that there are so many functional activities that can be done without a gym… burpees and the best is our Surya Namaskar.”

* Malhar Pandya
“You can be fit with yoga and a good diet. As an actor, if I say fitness is very important to me, it doesn’t mean that I have to be muscular. It’s good to be lean because as an actor you can fit in any role or clothes. Even if I would have not been an actor, I would have been fit. When I go outdoors for a shoot, there are certain kinds of exercises which can be done there itself, which don’t not need a gym, so I do those.” (IANS)
